Felicia Day as Little Red Riding Hood?Yay!  Everyone’s favorite near shut-in MMORPG addict has landed herself another job!

Felicia Day will be staring in Syfy’s re-imaging of Little Red Riding Hood:

“Scheduled to premiere in 2011, Red is Syfy’s latest re-imagining of classic fairy tales, legends and pop culture characters. The new line of films launched with Beauty and the Beasts: A Dark Tale, which starred Estella Warren, on February 27.


In the action-packed Red, Red (Day) brings her fiancé home, where he meets the family and learns about their business – hunting werewolves. He’s skeptical until bitten by a werewolf. When her family insists he must be killed, Red tries saving him. Red also stars Kavan Smith (Stargate Atlantis) and Stephen McHattie (Watchmen).”

Okay, the summary doesn’t sound too promising, but Felicia Day is funny and fantastic and I’ll be looking forward to this one. Here’s hoping she’ll elevate the plot to a level that will meet everyone’s expectations.

And because it seems à propos:
